    Sinner and Saint are both back in the second book in this series. You need to have read the first book to understand this second book. It's been five years since Xavier walked away from Waverly, he though he was doing the right thing by her, that he couldn't keep her safe. He feels that he was too distracted by the all consuming love he has for her to be an effective bodyguard or boyfriend. It was all too much to keep her safe he had to let her go. Even five years on he hasn't gotten over her. Wav Sinner and Saint are both back in the second book in this series. You need to have read the first book to understand this second book.

He feels that he was too distracted by the all consuming love he has for her to be an effective bodyguard or boyfriend. It was all too much to keep her safe he had to let her go. Even five years on he hasn't gotten over her. Wavely is a huge starlet now, bigger than either her mother or father, stronger, fitter and she knows how to look after her own safety. Waverly has tried to move on, the world and media think she has an on again off again love affair with her hot British fella actor Dante , but they share not only film studios but a secret that begins to unravel and the lies that revolve around that secret bring Wavely and her assistant Kate back into direct contact with Xavier and his security firm. The situation that Waverly and Dante find themselves is dangerous, guns, kidnapping and murder. Can Waverly's heart survive another encounter with Xavier? Can Xavier learn to focus? This is a thriller, a love story and a second chance story all rolled into one fabulous read. The humour and witty banter between the characters is still as fresh and funny as in the first book I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book

    Breaking the Rules is the conclusion to the Sinner and Saint series. The story picks up exactly five years after the end of Crossing the Line.

    I love Lucy's books, but I am not a big fan of spy stories. I enjoyed the first part of this series, Crossing the Line, and was so excited for the rest of the story after its exciting cliffhanger! But Breaking the Rules almost seemed like a different story altogether. The characters were the same, but the storyline was completely different than the first part of the story. It takes place five years after the end of the CtL, so things are bound to be a little different, but it was not what I was I love Lucy's books, but I am not a big fan of spy stories.

I found it a little hard to follow, but again, this might be because the spy genre is just not my thing. I liked Xavier, but I really didn't like how he waltzed back into Waverly's life and basically told her they were going to be together whether she liked it or not. He left her devastated, and five years go by and he expects her to welcome him back with open arms? He eventually won me over, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have even given him a chance if I were Waverly. The conclusion was very exciting, and of course, being a Lucy Score book, it was well-written and sexy and funny.

I wanted to like this book just as much as the others, but... I felt this book was rather flat. I found Xavier's behaviors immature and Waverly lacked depth.

    This was probably one of the best written books I've read this year. Part of me didn't want it to ever end. Waverly and Xavier, five years later, had even more chemistry then when they first fell in love. The conversations between them, professing how they felt for each other, were my favorite parts. The adventure, suspense and jokes kept me excited throughout. This is definitely a must read. Lucy Score is an amazing writer! This was probably one of the best written books I've read this year.

    WTF? I usually love Lucy's novels but I couldn't finish this one. What kind of idiot disarms a woman who's been attacked, and probably will be again, and says she gets the weapon back "after she earns it"? After she kicks ads and saves his? Ugh. I can't read this kind of misogyny. I'd been ignoring the ridiculous 'i know best because I'm a man' but I can't stand it any longer. Gets 2 stars because the writing is very good. WTF?

After graduating from Stanfor Breaking the Rules (Sinner & Saint #2) by Lucy Score is a contemporary, second chance, Hollywood romantic suspense told in third person, dual POV. It takes place five years after book one and concludes the duet. Waverly is now working as an actress and secret agent for Target Productions a dual purpose "studio" that makes movies on the public side and runs clandestine contract operations for government programs in need of the special access that comes with celebrity. After graduating from Stanford, she was recruited and mentored by Dante Wrede, her fellow actor, secret agent and field partner. When an operation goes sideways, Waverly is injured, Dante is missing, and she's uncertain if he even made it out alive. Xavier gets a bad feeling when the media runs a story about Waverly going to rehab after a DUI accident. He knows something's rotten about the story because she's never been a drinker. Concerned for her safety, Xavier tracks her down and forces his way back into her life as her protector by threatening to reveal her secrets. As a trained operative, Waverly doesn't want or need him to take care of her, but she can't risk exposing her cover. Despite five years without any contact, Xavier and Waverly haven't been able to get over each other and their attraction is stronger than ever. Xavier is determined to win her back, but Waverly wants nothing to do with him. She's still angry about the way he left her when she was vulnerable and needed him the most. Will Waverly ever be able to forgive Xavier? Will he be able to earn back her trust and win her heart? And what happened to Dante? Is he dead or alive? How did their mission go so wrong? Is there a mole compromising their safety? Read the book to find out. I loved the conclusion to Xavier and Waverly's story! Full of intrigue, action, suspense and steamy chemistry, it's about learning to let go of past hurts in order to move forward with an open heart. A gripping story about second chances where true love wins in the end.

    This is the second book in Score’s Sinner and Saints 2 book mini-series. It definitely shouldn’t be read as a standalone. While this book like Crossing the Line, the first book in the series contains some suspense, I found it a lot lighter, than the first book. In fact, I thought it was a fun, silly romp more than anything.

While this book like Crossing the Line, the first book in the series contains some suspense, I found it a lot lighter, than the first book. In fact, I thought it was a fun, silly romp more than anything. Our author Lucy Score took full advantage of the fantasy factor which is part of the contemporary romance genre when she wrote this story. The first fantasy is that our heroine, A-list actress Waverly Sinners could complete a four-year degree in three years at Stanford while devoting her summer breaks to making movies, not taking extra classes. The second larger fantasy is that in two short years after graduation (again while still making movies) she’s become so proficient in the martial arts and so experienced that she’s capable of fearlessly disarming and taking down four armed men in an alley. And that she’s at the same time become fluent in multiple Eastern European languages. And perhaps the biggest fantasy of all is that she could ever forgive our hero Xavier Saint for breaking her heart by telling her she’s too damaged and toxic to love or be loved and walking away from her five years ago. Normally I’d be super frustrated with a heroine who was so slow to acknowledge her feelings for the hero. But considering what Xavier said when he left her, I’m completely am Team Waverly on this one. This story picks up five years after Crossing the Line ends. Xavier is working out of the New York office of Invictus Security and Waverly has become an even bigger movie star after her graduation from Stanford and moonlights as a spy working for the movie studio who contracts out its actors to government agencies needing celebrity spies who can hobnob with the rich and famous and gather information for them. Neither has had direct contact with the other since their breakup but both have been unable to move on in their personal lives and find a satisfying new relationship. They both cyberstalk each other. When a mission Waverly and her longtime friend and pretend boyfriend Dante Wrende were sent on goes horribly wrong and Waverly receives a minor gunshot wound and Dante goes missing, she is sent to her home in Belize to recover and lay low by the studio. They put out a story that she was in a DUI car accident and has gone into rehab. Xavier, knowing that because Waverly’s mother is an alcoholic Waverly doesn’t drink, realizes something is terribly wrong. He tracks her down at her private home in Belize where he inserts himself in her life again telling her he’s there to help and protect her even if she doesn’t want him around. While that’s also true, at this point Xavier has realized walking away from ‘Waverly was the biggest mistake he’s ever made in his life and that she’s the only one he can ever love so he’s packed a 4 carat engagement ring in his luggage and sets off to not only save Waverly but to convince her to marry him. There is just so much we’re asked to accept here I don’t know where to start? That Waverly whose only job and experience in her spy assignments was to get people drunk and talking or planting electronic bugs could be so cool and collected while bullets are flying around her, even after she’s hit. That she can converse fluently in Russian with Petra’s bodyguards. That she and Dante don’t have more than a gut feeling that something is wrong when they agree to take a mission that seems to have no objective other than for them to just hang out with Petra, a Russian billionaire’s daughter. Or that despite how hurt she was by Xavier she allows him to move into both her house in Belize and then her main home back in L.A. without putting up much real push back. At any rate Xavier becomes Waverly’s shadow, not so slowly worming his way back into her life. Waverly doesn’t want Xavier to know about her second job as a spy but she does want his help finding out what happened to her good friend Dante. Eventually she’s forced to reveal the truth to Xavier and he pulls out all the stops to help her. And of course, even though Waverly doesn’t completely trust Xavier won’t break her heart again despite his declared love for her and intentions of marrying her, she can’t resist their physical chemistry. So they spend a lot of time having really, really hot sex. Again, normally at some point after the hot sex and declarations of love and advice from her mom and even Xavier’s ex, I’d be screaming at Waverly to forgive him and admit she’s in love with him. But I totally get her reluctance. (view spoiler)[ Which makes the scene where she finally admits to Xavier that she loves him and then immediately agrees to marry him and wears his ring all in the same scene that much more unbelievable. And then after telling Xavier he needs to trust her if their relationship is going to work she not willing to trust him, totally leaves him out in the cold when she discovers the bad guy is using her mother to change the parameters of their planned mission. (hide spoiler)] The only thing that really bothered me about Waverly was that she couldn’t really understand that Xavier worrying about her as she put herself into life threatening situations didn’t mean he didn’t trust and believe in her abilities. Despite the unbelievable parts of this story it was pretty good if not great for me. Watching Xavier trying to win Waverly’s trust back had its funny as well as sometimes touching moments. Xavier finding out who Waverly’s secret “Super Hacker” buddy is was fun. As was the phone call from mom. Seeing all of Waverly’s fans pulling for her and the man who saved her life to renew their romance had lots of warm feels. As did watching a very vulnerable Xavier trying to prove to Waverly that he can be fun too. Score mentioning a certain script writer from Blue Moon was sort of a neat insider bonus as was using Barbados as a possible wedding location after she based the weddings in her The Worst Best Man book there. Watching Dante and Petra’s father verbally spar was a hoot. The sex scenes were ridiculously hot and frequent. The suspense as Waverly and Xavier search for Dante, try to save Petra and then take down the evil studio head was pretty good even if it didn’t feel quite as threatening to me as Garmin stalking Waverly in the first book. I totally didn’t see the surprise in their confrontation coming. The bottom line for me on this book and series is that even though it won’t ever rank among the top of my many favorite Lucy Score books it was still an enjoyable read.

In addition, she has studied self-defense techniques and become an effective undercover agent on the side. Both Waverly and Xavier have become involved with others romantically. However, as Waverly has seemingly entered a serious relationship with a British heartthrob, Xavier has realized the mistake he made when he left Waverly at the end of Book 1. He is determined to win Waverly back, so he sweeps into Waverly’s life once again. Winning her back won’t be easy though because although Waverly has moved on, she has not forgotten or forgiven him for leaving her. While this book was suspenseful and sexy, it just doesn’t quite live up to the first book in the series. It is still worth the read though, especially if you fell in love with Waverly and Xavier in Crossing the Line.

Waverly as a spy was hard to believe and Xavier is even more over the top protective than before. I was happy to see they finally got their HEA but the road there wasn't very believable. I've loved everything else by Lucy Score but this story just wasn't doing it for me.

    This is the conclusion of the Sinner and Saint duet. The first book had a good buildup. We saw what Waverly's life was like at 20 yrs old in the spotlight. Xavier was hired to protect her and when real danger came her way he felt responsible for what happened. We were a little heartbroken at the end of that book. Fast forward 5 years and Waverly has taken hold of her own life. She's now calling the shots and isn't the naive starlet she had once been.

Love ripped her apart and when Xavier waltzes back into her life she tries not to let it happen again. I love Xavier and Waverly but the storyline is a little far fetched. So read it as it is, take it as entertainment and not seriously. I do wish the books had an epilogue in them however newsletter subscribers get a crossover story featuring Waverly, Xavier and the folks from Blue Moon. That's what finally got me to read the duet. I do wish I had read it sooner (not a cliffie fan so I put it off).

    Another fun romp. Book two of the Sinner and Saint stories does not disappoint in romance, angst, pleading redemption, and some nice sex. The new side job could be a bit more believably spun, but I always give poetic license for a fun story. I was again happy to see the characters stories carry from both books, and the many potential romances come to fruition. This is a fun rollick thru multiple countries, and lots of danger. I love the way Waverly grew into a strong brave fire house of her own, Another fun romp. Book two of the Sinner and Saint stories does not disappoint in romance, angst, pleading redemption, and some nice sex.

Maybe a nice kick to his nuts and her taking her gun back would have been in order? Fun romp in any case, with lots of twists.

    Badass! This book was the perfect way to finish up Xaverly! I could not be more on the edge of my seat about how Waverly really grew up and started making her own choices. After the cliffhanger from the 1st book, I wasn't sure where this book would go. I never imagined it going the way it did, but Lucy made it epic! Waverly became the badass I knew she was all along! I appreciated the years Waverly and Xavier had apart to grow and mature as individuals so it made it that more true and real when t Badass! This book was the perfect way to finish up Xaverly!

    Saint and Sinner is a winner!! I love Lucy Score’s Blue Moon series and this series I think I loved even more than Blue Moon. Waverly and Xavier are everything I love in characters....smart, funny, sexy and tons of chemistry. I’m so glad I could read Crossing the Line and Breaking the Rules back to back so I could finish there whole story. Lucy is a genius story teller....I am truly amazed by her ability to draw me in from page one. I’m desperately hoping there’s more to come in this series.

    So Much Love... So I was totally not a happy camper with Lucy Score after the first book because she left me hanging and let’s just say that all has been forgiven with this book!! Five years after Crossing the Line ends we find Waverly and Xavier in very different places. Waverly is a bada$$ B and Xavier realizes what an idiot he is for walking out on her...while I was not thrilled at the cliffhanger of an ending for Crossing the Line, I’m thrilled that the author gave us this awesome look into X So Much Love...

    I love Lucy Score but this book pissed me off a little. I wish the h held oud a little longer. He left her for 5 years, said some really mean things, got into a relationship with someone else and suddenly he wants her back. Pssshhhh please. I was still mad when she already took him back. Really unsatisfying. I hoped he would grovel a little more. I getting pissed off again thinking about it. I should have given it 2 stars. Positive points: the h was most of the time kickass and I liked the side I love Lucy Score but this book pissed me off a little. I wish the h held oud a little longer.

    Like sands through the hourglass... This was like an episode of Dynasty. But, not good Dynasty. Rather, like season 5 when everyone is killed at a wedding type of episode. I like Ms. Score’s later works and see her skill developed A LOT over a few years. This plot was ridiculous and if I had to read one more time about Waverly’s perfect beauty or Xavier’s stunning looks, I was going to barf. The characters were caricatures and didn’t seem real at all. Just a shallow story.

    Loved it! I started with the Bootleg Springs Series and loved the writing in those, so I figured I would give Sinner and Saint a go. Ah-mazing writing, love story. Lucy Score apologized at the end of the first book for leaving us hanging and boy did she make up for it! Really truly loved the ups and downs with Waverly and Xavier! Definitely would recommend anyone looking for a good love story to choose these! Great job!

    About time! Yesssss finally!! I love Xaverly story!!! Their love was so quick in the beginning and though it hurt when they went separate ways it was such a beautiful reunification! I'm so glad they found themselves and grew then we're able to return to each other and learn as a couple, through so much drama. Them love scenes *fans myself* whew!

    Ya gotta buy 2 books for Xavier & Waverly’s story! Crossing the Line is first, then Breaking the Rules. I don’t normally like cliffhangers, but if I know beforehand, I can plan ahead. This story is fantastic which kinda goes without saying since Lucy Score is one of my very favorite authors. There’s sexual tension, romance, intrigue, suspense, heartbreak, and an excellent HEA! These books are keepers!
